Service Description

Journalism: I have served five years in the U.S. Army National Guard as a public affairs specialist. I received specialized training at the U.S. Defense Information School, in AP-style journalism. I routinely write press releases, cutlines, news and feature stories for a wide array of events. I am very strong at copy-editing.

The majority of my online portfolio can be found at http://www.dvidshub.net/portfolio/1151124/chelsea-barber#.VKBLBsBB.

Business writing: Over the past seven years I've worked in commercial real estate investment and building management. I have worked for large companies such as Volkswagen Group of America and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. I've also worked on accounts representing municipal city government. This history provides me business communication experience in the civil, corporate and non-profit sectors. I can write online content, white papers, proposals, memorandum, and so on.

I am in the process of finishing my Bachelor's degree in English. I recently completed a Business Writing course and will continue to take courses for the next two years. On top of my journalism and business experience, attending school keeps me fresh and provides me valuable resources via campus and faculty resources.
